Company law 2020 Important changes & updates

Take the guess work out of the Brilliant change in Companies (Amendment) Act 2019

With the NEW passing of Companies (Amendment) Act 2019 recently come into force on 15 January 2020. This Seminar give you the knowledge needed to keep abreast with the substantial changes to Malaysia Company Law. With New Risks and Unexpected shift in the Power of Shareholder and Directors. 


One of the most painful application of Company law is when there is dispute between Directors and Shareholders or sudden demise of shareholder. It cast great dilemma on Director, Shareholders, Auditors, and internal and external Accountant. Stakeholders who are ill informed on change in Company Law will be stuck and make graved decisions. These applications will be covered in your Company Law seminar.

On the other hand, Shareholders always think that they have all the Power to direct Directors to act according to their wills and wishes. Do you remember story of Steve Job, where he was kicked out from the company he has founded? Same goes with WeWork? Groupon co-founder? It happens more frequent than we see in the news. What you can do to prevent being Kicked Out of Your Own Company.


Shareholders having the Final Say in the ultimate Decision

Ignorance is not an excuse in the eye of law, Directors need and must know the Latest Risks involved. 

Company Secretary must know that Companies (Amendment) Act 2019 is
NOT the same as Companies Act 2016. 

Company Law is also Bread and Butter of an Accountant.  


Accountant not involves in company law? Despite Company Secretary is the one who legally “administer” company law procedures and processes. Accountant is the one who is stuck in a catch 22 situation. 

Accountant usually being perceived as only in charge of account. In reality they are the one who carry out the consequences arising from change in company law. Accountant need to deal which the question of : “Who has the power? Who can approve these payment? Who can access the accountant? What if director pass away suddenly? If there is dispute, which side I need to be on?

Lets face it, in most companies Accountant is the one who does the calculation, writes the checks, directors is the one who sign them. Accountant read the contract, comment on them. Negotiate for price.

Be it financial controller, the C-Suite or director all faces the same challenge. Especially now that there is a change in execution of legal documents. Who can sign, when can sign and how many people need to sign. 

Who will execute the transaction and entries. Especially when it involves power and right to manage company, access to accounting records and access to bank.

In business world we need clarity on the basic question of “Who can sign, when can sign and who else need to sign”. This stability is now disrupted by Companies (Amendment) Act 2019.
